Some girls spend their weekend days catching up on sleep and lounging in their pajamas or old college sweats watching “Legally Blonde” TBS for the 500th time. If they need to run a low-key errand, they’ll throw on a pair of jeans or leggings and a t-shirt and a sweatshirt, and that’s basically the extent of their weekend wardrobe.

Thankfully, Kate Spade’s new Saturday line, which debuted earlier this month, can change the way you dress on your days off. The line’s cool pieces are not only reasonably priced, but allow you to mix and match items for an effortlessly laid-back vibe. And with spring (slowly) on the horizon, everyone needs fresh new outfits, right? Oh, and they also offer free shipping and returns.

Take a look at 13 beyond-basic pieces from this hot collection, which also includes travel bags and lifestyle goods. All items available at

Shirttail Skirt in Pick-Up Sticks, $85

An homage to the classic kids game, this skirt’s design is fun and fresh. Wear this with a top in any color found in the skirt and flat sandals for an easygoing trip to outdoor markets.

Love the watercolor print, and it becomes work appropriate with a black blazer and pencil skirt.

A polka dot blouse is super versatile; wear it with a bright blue blazer and slim pants for work, or swap the slim pants for bright skinnies for night.

I love this piece not just because of the name, but because it is so versatile for work, too.

Everyday Shift Dress, $180

Like the name implies, this is a great everyday piece to wear year-round. The stud detail makes it a little bit tough, a little bit girlie and a whole lot of fun.

iPhone 5 Case in Fine Fellow, $25

Design a Weekender, $280-$290

It might be a hefty price, but it’s totally your own unique design. Choose your body and handle cover, then your base, then your front and back pockets from 10 color options, then your straps from three colors, and finally, personalize it with a monogram.
